    Canada - Lisa Mitchell, 31, found dead, hidden in her Calgary home, 29 Oct 2012


    A Calgary man has been charged with second-degree murder and indignity to a body in connection with the death of his common-law wife, who disappeared in 2012, after police found what’s believed to be human remains at their Ogden duplex on Friday night.

    Allan Shyback, 38, of Calgary, was arrested out of town at an undisclosed location. He was charged Saturday in the death of Lisa Michelle Mitchell, 31, and is expected to appear in court Monday.

    Police say Mitchell was last seen Oct. 29, 2012 at the couple’s Ogden home in the 7600 block of 26A Street S.E.

    Calgary police say the common-law husband and children of Lisa Michelle Mitchell, a missing Calgary woman, lived among what are believed to be her remains for more than two years...

    "They brought a small object that was about four or five feet long by about three feet wide — it looked like it could be a Tupperware box, a large Tupperware bin," said Napane Penny, a neighbour. "I was in shock, I was horrified"...

    Police will not say why Mitchell's children and visitors did not notice a body in the home in the two years since her disappearance. "There are some circumstances with where — within the house — that will be revealed during the court process that will answer that question," said Sgt. John Hebert with the Calgary Police Service.

    Two years is a ridiculously long time to acquire a search warrant, given that there already was a history of a "domestic incident".

    January 2015:
    Undercover officers befriended Allan Shyback before arrest in wife's death

    The man accused of killing his wife and hiding her body in their family home for two years was the target of an undercover police operation.

    A year-long Mr. Big sting was carried out, resulting in the charges, according to Shyback's lawyer Balfour Der.

    Such operations involve undercover officers pretending to be criminals who befriend the target with the ultimate goal of eliciting a confession to the crime the target is suspected of committing, most often a homicide.

    Shyback appeared briefly Friday in Court of Queen’s Bench, where defence counsel Balfour Der and Crown prosecutor Jayme Williams scheduled a nine-day trial to commence May 15, 2017.
